SB120

I can tell you, Drew Cline, why Republicans are unloaded and silent about guns and speech

by Skip October 23, 2014

From the Op-Ed that Drew Cline wrote over at the UL about the Republican reluctance to go after Dems lack of support on the Constutition: …It is a little surprising that Democrats have dropped the issue, given that they are using so many other distractions to avoid talking about President Obama, and that certain gun control […]

GrokSHOTS! – Is Any Shared Opinion Potential Coordination?

by Steve MacDonald May 26, 2014
Thumbnail image for GrokSHOTS! – Is Any Shared Opinion Potential Coordination?

SB120 is written so badly that you could probably make the case that any shared opinion in any digital medium could be construed as coordination–which brings us back to the problem of estimating expense relative to any perceived act of coordination…which was left undefinable because the point was never meant to be defining sums to […]

NH GOP Meeting – Ruminations: Kelly Ayotte

Thumbnail image for NH GOP Meeting – Ruminations: Kelly Ayotte

Consistency breeds Trust which yields Votes.  The operative word is “Consistency” – is what you SAY congruent with what you DO?  Can we, as voters (notice I DIDN’T say “Members of the NH GOP State Committee” – at least, thus far) see that Consistency and can we depend upon it?  Are we so sure of […]

Thumbnail image for NH House Passes Speech Cartel – Bill SB-120

The anti-free speech bill SB120 creates a government regulated speech cartel, that violates the US constitution, the New Hampshire Constitution, and common sense, but the NH Legislature passed it anyway.  Governor Nanny Hassan is expected to sign it because it violates your speech rights in a way favorable to her oppressive political worldview. The next […]

by Skip May 13, 2014

Last night I traveled southeast to video the monthly Rochester 9/12 meeting.  Haven’t been for a long while but since Jerry and Sue Delemus asked, I went!  The place was packed – and a boisterous crowd at times as well.  The main draw was the reporting by Jerry (and with some of his friends that […]

There was plenty to talk about the BLM trying to grab more land in Texas and Oklahoma, and what those states had to say about it.  As an afterthought I had to wonder–just now as I write this–with all this land grabbing going on…is there someone at BLM named Putin, or perhaps Vladimir? This leads […]

So, this is how Jeanne Shaheen works the “uncoordination” coordination racket? – Part 2

A bit more of a close up of the same thing here in my previous post – Jeanne Shaheen seems to be saying “Here it is, boys – come and use it FOR ME!”.  Moe Lane over at RedState has our next Object Lesson (emphasis mine, reformatted): …Or at least the wickedness of Jeanne Shaheen’s […]

Notes from today’s hearing on Speech-infringing Senate Bill 120 (SB 120), as reported here, suggest that there are enough concerns about who will be affected beyond what sponsors claimed was the original intent to merit more time and consideration. Or maybe this is a challenge to see if I really can write about this issue […]

Once You Sets Foot on The New Hampshire Speech Plantation…you best know the rules before speaking. Free speech exists to protect us from government tyranny so whenever the government or one of its surrogates tries to argue in favor of using government force to control political speech you need to pay attention.  When they actually […]

I have been following the New Hampshire Political ruling class efforts to stifle political speech for years.  It is a bipartisan effort to erect barriers to free speech.  So what do you call that?  Almost free speech?  Sort of Free speech?  Selective Free speech?  Speech that’s free but only during the calendar days defined by […]

Senate Republican Leader Jeb Bradley is proposing changes to New Hampshire’s election laws so voters will know who is paying for negative television campaign ads and material mailed to their homes. That’s the sell for the low information voter, but the Boston.com article even had […]

SB 0120 – Bride of HB 1704 (2012) Political Speech For The Privelaged Few Makes A Come-Back

by Steve MacDonald February 4, 2013

SB 0120, sponsored by three New Hampshire Senate Republicans, a House Republican and a House Democrat, is nothing more than the free speech killing bride of the amendment to HB1704 proposed last year. It is the same language, placing the same similarly complex, overly demanding, ambiguous bureaucratic horse collar on political speech, which last May […]
